A Chat with Sierra Blades
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Classes taught by Reno's only USFCA certified fencing master; all equipment loaned at no cost. Program is recognized by Truckee Meadows Community College as part of the Workforce Development program. Weeklong beginning camps are also available as are private lessons.
What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans? Fencing takes practice and time to learn. It will take the typical student about three years to be a complete fencer, five years to be successful in competition and 7-10 to become a national champion.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? I had several successful students and our space was limited.
What do you love most about your job? I love seeing my students learn and improve.
